No…this is not a picture of my post-baby body! Not yet at least (you must think positive moms!)…
But it is a picture of a garment that I really love. It’s made by Design Veronique and I heard about it from my ObGyn’s office. This cesarean support garment is an FDA approved medical device, ideal for recovery after c-sections. What does it do? It provides support, stabilization and comfort.
When I opened it up from the box, I thought, “Will I really wear this tight, corset-looking thing? And how hard is it going to be to take this on and off to go to the bathroom?”
The first time I tried to put it on, it was comical. You want to order it a little tight so it will do its job. But the very first day, I couldn’t quite zip it up. I waited about 2 days for the swelling from the c-section to decrease and then tried again. With my husband’s help, I could zip it up. The next day, I could zip it by myself.
I have been wearing it all day for 3 days now. I am amazed at how comfortable it is. I actually prefer wearing it because it gives me back support and protects my incision site. Plus it gives the appearance of being slimmer, so when I look in the mirror, I have hope.
I highly recommend Design Veronique’s cesarean support garment. I’ll keep you posted about how long I use it and its benefits. Corsets…no. Comfortable Design Veronique…yes!
